We had no business doing what we did
I was defacing buildings like a latchkey kid
We were fed up and busy on a losing bid
It was cheap and easy

But now I understand it’s common place
We have no point of entry no protected space
When we stumbled in love ah it’s a losing race
It was deep believe me

But then I see you running with a brilliant stare
You got a fighters lines you got a lion’s share
Of the touch and grow but listen I don’t care
Never pictured you, I never placed you there but

I know that you’re in love with her
I can tell by the way you never touch her, or look at her
I know that you’re in love with her
I can tell by the way you never touch her, or look at her
And you get in all kinds of interest
Oh oh and you get in all kinds of deep regret

Oh you come in burst and it’s so bitter sweet
Relax you have no wisdom for your tired feet
You have a piece of cheating it’s not all you eat
It’s just; it’s half of winning and I swear

I’d argue patience of a dying man
I would parade my virtues over open land
But I’d relax if only I could have what you have
But I can’t make new love

I’d take a hundred years to make a calm reserve
Then I’d scrape these wires over open nerve
Do we fall out basking in the glow of harm
I remember trusting you with open arms but

I know that you’re in love with her
I can tell by the way you never touch her, or look at her
I know that you’re in love with her
I can tell by the way you never touch her, or look at her
And you get in all kinds of interest
Oh oh and you get in all kinds of deep regret

From the silent beating of the autumn night
Caught a piece of memory and I gripped it tight
And it’s just my luck, oh yeah it’s just my luck you hang around

But then I felt it twisting little legs and feet
From a chrysalis I got a tiny beast
And I let it go and now it’s just my love that hangs around

And there’s a ray of hope you know I’m sick of hate
I’m sick of losing sleep I’m sick of sleeping late
When I tell myself that that’s a loser’s fate
I expose this life for all that I am

Some jealous kid who would do the same
If I believed in love, I don’t believe in love, I don’t believe in love
Do you believe in love cause

I know that you’re in love with her
I can tell by the way you never touch her, or look at her
I know that you’re in love with her
I can tell by the way you never touch her, or look at her
And you get in all kinds of interest
Oh oh and you get in all kinds of deep regret

Ah ah, I’ll make a promise to be different in the future
When you undress your love it’s not your fault
It’s human nature it’s a shame

    General CommentThe writer of this song is watching two people fall in love, and is realizing that he himself can't love.
    "But I’d relax if only I could have what you have
    But I can’t make new love
    I’d take a hundred years to make a calm reserve
    Then I’d scrape these wires over open nerve"

    "I expose this life for all that I am

    Some jealous kid who would do the same
    If I believed in love, I don’t believe in love"



    At the same time he's talking about an old love, and reminiscing about it:
    "We had no business doing what we did
    I was defacing buildings like a latchkey kid
    We were fed up and busy on a losing bid
    It was cheap and easy"

    General CommentI feel like the song artist starts with a story.
    Two young lovers stumble into love, while going through problems of there own. The acts they preformed together were disrespectful and wrongful to others. They desperately searching for something new at the time they fell in love. They both felt it was the immoral and easy way out of their own situations.Yet go through the full motions of falling in love at the same time.

    We had no business doing what we did
    I was defacing buildings like a latchkey kid
    We were fed up and busy on a losing bid
    It was cheap and easy
